Impact Entrepreneurship Initiative: How to get your first check?
The conversation hosted by The New School is the first in a series of discussions on how to get your first check for your venture. In this first event, they focus on founders who received grant funding as their first check, and funders who write grants for the earliest stage companies, who will provide tools, tips, and tricks on raising the type of capital that makes sense for your stage, vision, values, and purpose.
Learn how to navigate funding as a social impact business, and identify other funding opportunities and understand the role and limitations of VC (venture capital).
